There are so many great places to see and experience in our area and it’s hard to visit them all.

That’s why Local 4 News is hitting the road to showcase some of these hidden gems.   All summer long, Local 4 News Community Spotlight will criss-cross the Quad Cities area to shine a light on a number of these unique communities. We’ll explore their history and the attractions that give each town its distinctive appeal.  And we’ll introduce you to the people and the businesses that make the area tick.

This summer, join us for Local 4 News Community Spotlight, driven by US Adventure RV.
